  abstract =     "We present an approach for automated evolutionary
                 design of the functionary of driving agent, able to
                 operate a software model of fast running car. The
                 objective of our work is to automatically discover a
                 set of driving rules (if existent) that are general
                 enough to be able to adequately control the car in all
                 sections of predefined circuits. In order to evolve an
                 agent with such capabilities, we propose an indirect,
                 generative representation of the driving rules as
                 algebraic functions of the features of the current
                 surroundings of the car. These functions, when
                 evaluated for the current surrounding of the car yield
                 concrete values of the main attributes of the driving
                 style (e.g., straight line velocity, turning velocity,
                 etc.), applied by the agent in the currently negotiated
                 section of the circuit. Experimental results verify
                 both the very existence of the general driving rules
                 and the ability of the employed genetic programming
                 framework to automatically discover them. The evolved
                 driving rules offer a favourable generality, in that a
                 single rule can be successfully applied (i) not only
                 for all the section of a particular circuit, but also
                 (ii) for the sections in several a priori defined
                 circuits featuring different characteristics.",
